Natural Relaxers???

A "natural relaxer" is supposedly a chemical-free relaxer that uses natural herbs and substances. I'd a heard about them a couple years ago but I'd yet to come across one until today when searching the World Wide Web...

Here's some of the description given by the manufacturer;
"...Baka Beauty Products' Natural-Laxer MIX is 100% natural powder made entirely of sun dried exotic herbs and Sahara Clay hair leaving it silky smooth. The herbs used in the natural relaxer are completely natural and completely safe. When mixed with Sahara Clay and hot water and applied to the hair and skin, it produces miraculous results. This ancient herbal secret has been used dating back to the pharaohs. Available now from Treasured Locks, Natural-Laxer MIX is an advanced spa treatment for your hair and skin that you apply yourself in the comfort of your own home. Each Natural-Laxer MIX is enough for approximately application for a "typical" head of hair, depending on the volume and length of your hair.

Ingredients: a blend of carefully selected sun-dried herbs: myrtle, valerian, rose petals, red clover, fenugreek, nettle and sage mixed with pulverized unadulterated Sahara Clay"

My personal opinion on natural relaxers? Firstly, I feel that it most probably deceptive either in terms of results or in terms of ingredients or possibly both. Secondly, I really think the issues around relaxing hair is not just about how harmful the chemicals used in them are but also about the mind set of the users therefore I don't think a "natural relaxer" (if it actually is natural and not just claiming to be) is much better then any other relaxer - en mi opinion.

What I want to know though, is how do you feel about the concept of a "natural relaxer"? Do you feel it's the same or better than a normal relaxer? Have you ever used a "natural relaxer"?
